Well, hello there, and welcome to a fresh new year! Feels good, doesn't it? I don't know about you, but the changing of the calendar always fills me with excitement and anticipation. Because who knows just what a new year will bring, right?
How many of you out there are resolution makers? I like making them, but it doesn't necessarily mean I'll follow through. It comes with being human, I think!
But I believe I've learned my lesson for this year -- I've made my resolutions a little less strict, a little more general. More achievable. It's much easier to say "get outside and move more" instead of "lose twenty pounds", don't you think?
What about writing goals? Have you any for this year? Is this going to be the year? Are you finally going to give it a shot and put that story down on paper or on the screen? Good luck! Make sure to set goals and keep them reasonable and achievable. Try for "500 words a day" rather than "a whole book in a month". I think your chances of success will vastly improve with the former and not the latter!
Let me know if there's anything you'd like me to blog about specifically this year, and I'll see what I can do!
In the meantime, raise a glass with me to 2013 -- here's to success, to accomplishments big and small and most of all -- lots of fun!
